Here are the top 8 Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids and Adults:

 

Halloween costumes for kid

Children today are more aware of what they put on their bodies. They have become more conscious and independent with their choices that picking a costume for them have become a task more than ever. If you are the type of parent who let their kids decide on their annual getups, we suggest knowing the recent television shows or movies your children like and pick up the pieces from there. But if your kid is still below the age of six or five, we suggest going for the cute route of animals and action figures. Amazon has a number of these types of costumes ready for shipping and the only thing you have to worry about it is makeup.

 

 

Option 1

Farm animals

You can try to put them in a cute cow or pig costume and just add a few accessories from bell leashes to milk cans (for cows) as the Halloween bag.

Option 2

Creatures of the night

I have always been amazed by the concept of a circus. Performers doing dangerous stunts they have mastered for years in preparation for their big act. Go for a vampire with a silk cape or the bearded lady if you want to exude extravagance.

Option 3

Cartoon characters

I’ve had the pleasure of dressing up as the Red Ranger from the old Power Rangers franchise and up to this day, even at a considerably mature age, I still hold on to that great memory. Some creative Halloween costume ideas for groups are the Adventure Time characters, the original Powerpuff Girls, Pokemon gym leaders, and the whole Toy Story gang. Children have play dates and it is a great idea to consult with the other parents for a cool collective Halloween costume.

DIY Halloween costumes

Adults can be more creative and even show more skin for Halloween. Being flirty on this day have become acceptable since Regina George from the movie Mean Girls came in their party city Halloween costumes dressed in a bunny lingerie. We can’t disregard her posies Gretchen who came in as a cat in a black latex jumpsuit and Karen a mouse, duh, (delivering the most hilarious banter in the movie) in a nightgown.

 

 

Option 4

Adults dressed as the Stranger Things gang

This Netflix show has become a Halloween fixture because of its storyline and great cinematography.  Groups can dress as the cast ensemble and you are assured of getting noticed since you can be the coolest group in that party.

Option 5

Game of Thrones, Hunger Games, and other book turned movie/TV show franchise

Their stories are the tales of our generation. The costumes in all of these shows are elaborate and it is a joy to say Valar morghulis at a stranger and hope for a response. Dressing up as one of the characters in any of these fictional stories can also strike up a great conversation especially if the one you are eyeing that night is also a GoT geek. 

 

 

 

Option 6

Halloween costume ideas for couples

Couples can go with whatever they want, really. After all, their arm candy is what everyone will talk about. But the best couple costumes are a reference from movies like Pretty in Pink, Clueless, Star Wars, and other cult films that are famously worn every Halloween! Just hope you won’t stumble with another couple with the same outfit or at least outshine them!

Option 7

Halloween costumes for men

Going stag this Halloween? That’s okay! A drink with your buddies is enough to muster the courage to introduce yourself with a woman who also went to the party alone. Go for a masculine hero who is almost not wearing anything like Hercules or any Tom Cruise action films. They radiate machismo that is perfect if you are after a gaze from the lady you like. Women respond well to men who invest in coming up with cool costumes since it’s a great conversation starter. Who knows if the net drink you’re holding is meant for someone else!  The possibilities are endless.

 

 

 

Option 8

Halloween costumes for women

In reality, women have the power to become who they want to be on Halloween. I have a friend who has a no-pants rule every Halloween and she dressed as a sexy nurse, a Victoria Secret Angel with a pink robe, a Mortal Kombat character, and last year as a Laguna Beach lifeguard. You can go crazy with your Halloween costume as long as you can pull it off!
